07.06. Digital transformation in countries of the Global south

We start into the fourth event of our five-part series “Global and development issues in resource justice”. This lecture is about the topic: “Digital Transformation in Countries of the Global South” and will take place on 07.06. at 19.45 Online. This lecture series is a cooperation project with Sächsische Entwicklungspolitische Bildungstage SEBIT and Oscar Choque – Fachpromotor für Rohstoffpolitik, Entwicklung und Migration sowie Mitglied bei AYNI Verein für Ressorcengerechtigkeit e.V..

Digitalization has its advantages. There are many social and economic benefits of digital technologies that are widely known and well documented. But there are also environmental and climate-related aspects of digitization that are more nuanced and less widely discussed. What are the drivers and challenges, trade-offs and opportunities that digital technologies bring, especially for rapidly digitizing economies like India?

The speaker for the event will be Dr. Deepali Sinha Khetriwal, Head of Sofies Office, India.

Participation in the event is free of charge. Registration is not necessary

Cooperation partners: SEBIT and Oscar Choque – Expert promoter for natural resource policy, development and migration

17.05. Self-sufficiency of critical raw materials in the EU: Lithium mining in Portugal

We are starting the third event in our five-part series “Global and Development Issues in Resource Justice”. Our third lecture is about: “Self-sufficiency in critical raw materials in the EU: lithium mining in Portugal”.  This talk will take place online on 17.05.2022 at 7:45pm.

Lithium has become an important raw material used in the electronics and pharmaceutical industries for decades. Despite concerns about irreversible environmental damage and negative impacts on local populations, licenses have also been granted to explore for lithium in certain areas of Portugal. The light metal is mainly found in the salt deserts of South America, but Portugal has the largest deposits in Europe. However, there is fierce opposition to lithium mining in civil society.

Speaker of the event is Pedro Santos, Quercus (Portugal).

Participation in the event is free of charge. Registration is not necessary.

This lecture series is a cooperation project with  SEBIT  and Oscar Choque – expert promoter for natural resource policy, development and migration and member of  AYNI Verein für Ressorcengerechtigkeit e.V.

No advertising – stickers

We have created “no advertising stickers” for you, so you can keep unnecessary advertising away from your mailboxes.  This contributes to the reduce of paper waste.

You can simply save the embedded stickers as PNG’s.

Not every “no advertsing sticker” states the same thing, the general sticker should prevent the delivery of leaflets, but free newspapers with editorial content are not included.

The general "no advertising sticker"

To prevent the delivery of this unwanted newspapers, a detailed version of the sticker is necessary.

A detailed "no-advertising sticker"

In addition to that, we created a sticker that let u get the free newspapers but also ensures that leaflets are prevented.

We are starting the second event of our five-part series “Global and Development Issues in Resource Justice”. The second lecture will take place on 10.05.2022 at 19:45.  This lecture series is a cooperation project with Sächsische Entwicklungspolitische Bildungstage (SEBIT) and Oscar Choque – expert promoter for resource policy, development and migration and member of AYNI Verein für Ressorcengerechtigkeit e.V.

Our speaker Michael Schmidt from the  Bundesanstalt für Geowissenschaften und Rohstoffe (BGR) and the German Mineral Resources Agency (DERA) will give an overview of their fields of action. With the spread of low-carbon energy technologies, the demand for energy-use metals such as lithium, cobalt, graphite, nickel and copper is increasing. Increasing extraction volumes will further increase the impact on people and the environment in mining areas. An overview of the environmental and social impacts on commodity-producing countries from the perspective of a government agency is provided. The German economy is dependent on primary raw materials. What are the German and European strategies to secure raw material procurement?

Participation in the event is free of charge. Registration is not necessary
